Student grades are reflected by written and turned-in work. Missed worksheets and classwork caused by an absence (participation points) only need made-up if it applies directly to the quiz or project. Quizzes and projects are to be completed in class with allotted time. Rarely will homework be given, and only in the extreme case that work could not be completed during classtime.
Participation grades (worksheets, small group activities) comprise 25% of the final grade.
Quiz/Project grades (three unit quizzes, one individual research project) comprise 75% of the final grade.
Parents and students are encouraged to visit Hopewell's Power Student website often to track progress in the course.
